Christmas Memories...

This year, our kids took on most of the tree decorating...I think the results were sweet and folksy!

Love my new ornament by Jenn at Noodle & Lou!


The annual "gingerbread" house...constructed with graham crackers and 'nilla wafers...made by Henry, Lucy & Charlie.A Christmas Journal I made for my parents...using a composition notebook decoupaged with scraps of paper and an antique Christmas postcard...oh, and vintage mica, too!Now we wait for the new year!

Hi Jody! Your house looks so great!! Your tree is super adorable... tell the kids I think they did a fabulous job! I'm so happy you love your lil' ornament:):) I'm way impressed with the kids' gingerbread house too!!! You have 3 little budding artists for sure:) The Christmas Journal is such a good idea. It would be great to do with the kids using old Christmas cards. Thanks for peeking at my flickr stuff. It took me SO long to get all that uploaded...I can't believe how much stuff there is from 2007! Hope you guys have a fun New Years Eve:) Wishing you lots of joy in 2009! xoxox...jenn
